Girls’ Dreams Program

02.02.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

A research conducted by ADEW Chairperson, Dr. Iman Bibars, revealed that an alarming 30% of daughters of ADEW beneficiaries have dropped out of school, and that they have no ambitions or daydreams about their future.

This program, developed since 1999, targets female dropouts aged from 11 to 20. ADEW targeted the little girls who are deprived from education and worked on reshaping their interests and empowering them to fit in with their communities and changing their low self-esteem.

The goal was to provide to these girls the right to dream, to express themselves and to have the ability to make a choice, and to enjoy their lives through a set of activities including: awareness-sessions on health, visiting libraries, drawing, sports and handicrafts to enable them to start up their SMEs.

The program has been introduced via opening class rooms, with 20 girls per class. The place is rented in the same streets where the girls live to guarantee the sustainability of the program and the graduation of the girls. The program is not only to teach girls useful skills but also to help them solve their problems.

The girls narrate their problems while the program offers them a healthy environment to speak out and express their problems. Girls’ Dreams Program’s has reached 16,000 girls since 1999.
